Mafia life

Definitely one of the best movies to see not only for Mafia lovers but for everyone since this movie is an amazing piece of cinematic culture. Possibly Scorses' best movie ever.The cast is great and includes Joe Pesci as Tommy DeVito, Robert DeNiro as Jimmy Conway, Ray Liotta as Henry Hill and Loarraine Bracco as Henrys wife Karen.
The movie is based on Henry Hills novel Wiseguy which I also reccomend.
The story is about a young irish italian boy who dreamed of being a wiseguy and who finnaly got his wish. It's a mafia story told from the lower end of the system. Wiseguys are the ones who have to bust their humps to earn the money for the family, however there are perks which most of them enjoy, beautiful women, the best seats at restaurants, and lots of cash.
There's alot of violence in this movie, also narcotics use and faul language. The plot is interesting, and witty. The cast is entertaining.

NO !!!!!!!!!! Why does it have to end now?

Those were my exact words when I saw the last episode of this DVD. Kenshin is near Kyoto...and the series reaches a new plateau...why should you buy this? Well, it's not exactly a choice....this series is a keeper

Not just another fight anime

If I tell you this anime is about an exceptional good martial artist boy who turns into a girl when cold water splashs him, son of a light living lazy father who turns into a panda, about a regular martial artist girl who hates boys, about an amazon girl who turns into a cat, about a lost boy (who gets lost going to the bathroom) who turns into a pig... Wouldn't you wonder what kind of sick plot it has? I'll tell you, is about love.Full of traditional japanese situations, you'll get to know the Tendo family, whose hosts bring all kinds of funny troubles, and where the love is the center of each chapter. Yes, it has nudity (the naked tops appears once in a while), but they are funny instead of erotical. This is the first season of this, one of the gratest anime series of all times (for the japanese people). 18 chapters (17 really, the last one is just a serie of past scenes). 4 Dvds in japanese and english. Too bad the japanese tracks are in mono. If you buy it, you'll feel that sensation again, when you loved someone but never have the courage to say "I love you".

Too Funny

I have seen these shows on a HBO marathon, and let me tell you, they ARE funny! You need to be a little twisted to get some of the humor, and had tried a drug or two sometime in your life. But damn.......... this is funny

Yes, the DVD is double-sided with about half the movie on each side. I did not find this to be much of a problem, as it gave me an intermission to let me go the the necessary. The movie is great, in my opinion, but it is a fair amount different from the short story (about 70 pages long), so I don't think it'd take that much to actually film it closer to the story. An the extra about the making of the film was good.

All-in-all, a very good movie.

A Touch of Frost - Season 1 - movie DVD cover picture

The world of detectives abounds with sharp minds, fast fists, clever perceptions, and organized method. Jack Frost doesn't posses any of these. But he is believable and likable. Following him on his exploits is a sheer joy. It is gritty, funny, and cleverly plotted. David Reynolds is the perfect Jack Frost!

An army of talent

There are a number of reasons that this movie is a stand a lone classic. It has a cast of actors many of which were already well known and highly regarded, and others that became stars later in their careers. The combination of humor, drama, (characters did die during some of the action scenes), and good old fashion "shoot em up" action, makes a good mix for an extremely enjoyable movie. The VHS version of this movie was one of the first videos I ever purchased, (and videos were a lot more expensive than they are today), and I was sorry that it was'nt in the letter box format. The scene where three soldiers walk "Italian Western" style, down a narrow village street to confront a Tiger tank, is not the same without full frame viewing. In viewing this movie, one must remember that it was a "child" of the 80's. So you have a Hippie soldier, and perhaps some humor reflecting the period of time that this movie was made. I don't believe however that the humor is at all dated. In regards to the Tiger tanks in the movie, which someone in another review suggested were actually modified T-34 tanks. I doubt seriously that this is the case, since many countries around the world had military equipment left over from World War II. I am a military hobbiest with many reference books, and those tanks sure looked real to me. Finally, I have seen some of the actors that were in the cast of this movie, refer to it in interviews on television. Years after working together, they still seemed to have fond memories of making the movie, and I got the feeling that they were a bunch of guys that had a great time. I think their enjoyment of acting together, is reflected in the smooth interaction that comes across in the film. They played off each other very well. So after you've "had a little wine and caught a few rays", sit back and enjoy a really great movie. Maybe you'll agree with "Odd Ball", and say "Woof, Woof!", in real appreciation of this entertaining movie.

If you have a little girl, she will love it. My daughter can just sit and watch Sailor Moon all the time, and Mini-Moon makes it even better. This is the kind of anime children can watch and enjoy. And, the music is great too.

owning up...

What is so strange (and familiar) about this film is that it will probably be seen by those who enjoy their films with a nice, pleasant cappuccino. A few will no doubt notice the relative inexhaustibility of weighing all the lucrative information, videos, and evidence files for pros and cons, truths and untruths. When finished with this film, however, the viewer will no doubt take their own understanding of psychology to form their own opinion and eventually ?start a conversation? with someone in their coffeehouse, smiting the defendants with disgust and maybe understanding. Did the Friedman?s do it? This is the question these people are paying to know, but what the intelligent viewer, that is to say blue collar, hip to the scene and music, receives, all throughout the film are scattered and kinetic thoughts, linking an idea to another one and so on, in an effort to eventually, and hopefully as soon as the credits role, apply their own understanding of morality to condemn these criminals. These kinetic thoughts never do reach the tip, though, and I came to the conclusion of merely one thing: it?s a complicated story, which is to say stranger than fiction flowing with very few themes, versus the more realistic aspects of real existence (which, for all you Descartes fans, may be doubted as well, though for the sake just stay with me), that being 10,000 things.
Post Script: Many will probably argue the worth of such a film or bash it for being voyeuristic smut, but negating is censorship. I really can?t think of a harder film to put into words or a review than this remarkable documentary. Honestly, what can I compare it to?
